As the first wakaf – a trust for pious, religious and charitable purposes – it was only in 1981 that it was reconstructed to house an administration building and a minaret. In 2001 it was declared a historic site by the National Heritage Board. In 2009, the mosque underwent extensive renovations to replace the roof and added new classrooms and a ladies’ prayer room.
The mosque has withstood the test of time even with many skyscrapers towering over it. It is professionally managed by a team of volunteers appointed by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS).
